Natalia's Experience

Experience description:   

I know exactly what ECMs are. 

I was VHI positive; currently I have AIDS in an advance phase, it started there. 

Sometimes, I completely forget about the time or conscious of my body, everything starts in my own funeral, I watch everything in third person…I see my family crying, hugging me, talking to me…and my body lies there in a coffin. I feel the suffering of each one of them, their love for me, I am receptive and I canalize all in me. I approach them, when they cry they transmit me their sorrow and I cry too. If they are remembering me with love they fill me with love. Everything passes in real time, in black and white though, there is no colour, I see myself in a coffin, I watch myself thoroughly and I can’t believe, I try to tell them that I am there with them, they don’t see me or hear me though. 

A whole day passes when I see a road or a tunnel (all in black and white) 

Something impulses me, pushing me towards the tunnel, at the end of it there is a white light extremely shiny. In the tunnel I completely forget about the time, I am slowly suspended, I feel wonderful in peace with myself; at the same time my whole life goes in front of me like a flash of lightening. All people I met, situations I have lived, sensations that I felt, it is overwhelming, so much that I want to reach the light…I feel that my people is there, that after all I will see each other again and will be together and I want to get there, but at the same time I feel for the one I leave in life, yet I perceive that something is missing with the alive people, I have the sensation that I can decide and everything ends…
